I always thought making siopao would be so hard to make. All I can hear is my dad’s voice saying the dough is so hard to make and perfect.
I finally taught myself how to make it and you know what? It wasn’t so bad to make! If you have dough, yeast and milk..you can easily make this! These are great to make ahead of time and freeze them. So when you are craving a snack or need to feed your child.. this is a great option. Pop it into your steamer and INSTANT CRAVING satisfied!
Here I’m going to show you how to make the siopao dough and the Asado filling. Asado is a marinated shredded meat. I’m using chicken, but you can use pork too.
Recipe: Siopao Dough: 3 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup sugar 1/2 tablespoon instant yeast 1/2 tablespoon baking powder (double-acting) 2/3 cup lukewarm milk 1/3 cup lukewarm water 3 tablespoon shortening Asado Filling: 1-3 pieces of chicken breast minced garlic oil 2 TBS soy sauce 2 TBS hoisin 1 1/2 TSP brown sugar 1 bay leave 1/2 cup water
